[Freeswitch-users] Originating calls

You can originate a call to the dialplan, e.g. from the docs

Here's an example of originating a call to an extension in a different
context than 'default' (required for the FreePBX which uses context_1,
context_2, etc.):

   originate sofia/internal/2001 at foo.com 3001 xml context_3

However, you have to have a valid A leg - which seems to have to be a SIP
Otherwise, you can create a lua or JS ivr and have that be your A-leg and
make outbound calls.
